HOD Appreciation!

I went to the convention in Arlington, Texas today, and once again I am so very impressed by Carrie, Julie, and Mike. They will help you work things out, know the curriculum so well, and are just so kind. I am very thankful for them and for HOD. After 4 years of my girls being together in HOD, I am ...

What to do?

I have two daughters that just started CTC. The oldest is 12 and in 7th grade. She is starting level 5 of R&S English. It is scheduled to do half the book this year and half next year.....do I do that? Or should we do it daily so that she can go onto book 6 as an eighth grader?

Thanks in advance!

Preparing Unit 24, Day 3

I have a question about a statement in the Hillyer book about Islam. He says, "When Muslims pray to Allah, they are praying to the same God that Christians and Jews worship." This is not at all what I have believed as a Christian and I am not likely to present such a statement to my girls as truth. ...

Re: Carrie: Coming to TX again?

I am completely disappointed that HOD was not accepted to the Arlington convention. Can anyone shed any light on why? I am thinking of sending an email respectfully expressing my disappointment. The other two exhibitors I purchase from are also not on their list, so I likely won't be going. I sure w...

Re: If you've used Preparing, please vote!

A million thanks for this post. This year was our first using HOD. I met Carrie and Julie at the homeschool convention in Arlington, TX last spring. I really wanted to combine my two girls as they are great friends and want to do everything together. I felt like my oldest daughter was a little weak ...

Re: Combining question

Hi Stephanie, I have rarely posted on this board because I am only in my first year of using HOD. (there are so many wise and seasoned HODers that I usually don't throw in my opinion :) ) I am currently combining my 2nd and 4th grade daughters in Beyond...with my 4th grader doing math, dictation, an...

Re: Math...need help! (Carrie?)

Thanks for your reply, Lora Beth! I need to provide a little more information. I always do the HOD directed lesson introductions....and usually we do them numerous times until I think she totally is getting it. Always in front of her for her use is a number line and manipulatives. (We use the ones f...
